back to "squawk box." we are just seconds away from weekly jobless claims and rick santelli and jim iuorio are standing by at the cme. you know, rick, whenever anyone compared to the cliff to t.a.r.p. i never really bought that. because t.a.r.p., i mean, the commercial paper markets were freezing up. it was -- i just don't think it's really the same thing, is it? it's not as front and center as that. and i -- we've talked about it so much, it's hard for me to believe the markets could just all of a sudden decide they're going to fall off a cliff like the fiscal cliff itself. what do you think, rick? >> no, i somewhat agree. i think the reason i brought it up, and i think i was one of the first to bring it up is, it just gives you a market impetus to get something done. but i think categorically they're nothing the same. t.a.r.p. was about some real issues. fiscal cliff is about being afraid, i think. >> let's do the numbers. >> 350,000 on initial jobless claims. that is definitely less than we were looking for. it's a dozen less than the revised number you're looking at last week. 3
